The Four Key Stages
Control Compliance Suite addresses IT risk and compliance challenges through a four-step process:
Plan: Define what your business and IT risk objectives are. Create policies to be compliant with external
regulations and best practice frameworks. Map policies to controls for multiple mandates to avoid redundant efforts.
Assess: Assess how you are performing against desired standards and controls. Identify deviations and
vulnerabilities. Evaluate how well people are following policies. For a more complete picture, bring in data from other Symantec and
non-Symantec solutions. Consolidate data in one central location for a 'composite view' of IT risk.
Report: Deliver Web-based dashboards and reports to drive action and accountability. Customize dashboards for
different audiences - senior executives, business unit leaders, audit and IT operations. Visualize IT risks in business-relevant
terms and model the impact of planned remediation activities over time.
Remediate: Prioritize remediation efforts based on business criticality rather than technical severity. Leverage
Symantec Workflow to automate remediation ticketing for faster responses to the most urgent IT issues.
